Virat and Anushka clear the airs over their engagement rumours

Putting a stop to speculations that lovebirds Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are getting engaged on New Year Day, the couple has dismissed the buzz as rumours.

The cricketer on Friday morning tweeted, “we aren’t getting engaged & if we were going to, we wouldn’t hide it. Simple… (1/2) (2/2) Since news channels can’t resist selling false rumours & keeping you confused, we are just ending the confusion :).” The ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ actress also retweeted Virat’s statement.

Anushka and Virat had taken off to Uttarakhand for the Christmas and New Year season. The couple were spotted at the Jolly Grant Airport in Dehradun. They reportedly checked in Anand Resort in Narendranagar. Both of them had shared pictures and videos of their stay in the hill state.

Then there were reports that the couple had joined Anushka’s parents in Tehri and Virat’s mother will also fly down and join them to ring in the New Year. The meeting of the family elders of the couple set tongues wagging that Virat and Anushka are ready to take the next step in their three-year-old relationship.

The marriage rumour were further fuelled when Amitabh Bachchan and his wife Jaya, and entrepreneur Anil Ambani and wife Tina, accompanied by their friends, were also spotted at the Dehradun airport on Thursday afternoon. They also reportedly headed to the same resort where the cricketer and his girlfriend were staying.   

Their arrival gave rise to a strong buzz that all of them were in the state to attend the engagement of Virat and Anushka on January 1. But now, Virat himself has cleared the airs resting their engagement rumours.
